The odds were not great but she picked a winner, not once but twice.
A woman in North Carolina, US picked two prize-winning lottery tickets the same day. She bought the $4,000,000 Diamond Dazzler ticket from a grocery store and won $10,000. After collecting her money from the headquarters of the lottery on Monday, Kimberly Morris stopped at a supermarket and bought another $20 lottery ticket. Perhaps, she was feeling lucky.
"It felt really great to win, but I really have always dreamed I would win $1 million!" the mother of three told lottery officials.
And it happened again. She won again. This time a whopping million dollars. The excited winner called her husband when she realised she had just won the lottery for a second time.
"She was freaking out on the phone. I couldn't understand her, so I told her to slow down. When I realized what she was saying, I didn't believe her at first. I had to come home and see it for myself," husband John Morris recalled.
The woman went back to the lottery office to claim her money. She went home with over $400,000 after tax deductions. She plans to invest the prize money and share some of it with her three children.
Overall, Kimberly had a pretty good Monday.
